A Little Halloween Fun

Hi There Everyone,
With so much going on around here this fall I just have been behind on making my Halloween treats for family and friends.  I know with the calendar date showing that we are half way to Halloween I need something super quick and simple.  I also wanted to make about 60 or so treats.  I just love having something to bring to work and to send to Samantha's office as well.  I also still have to bag up the pencils and notepads for Rory to pass out to her friends.  So with all that and limited time I reached back into the deep recesses of the crafty brain and remembered the ribbon pull candy bar holder.  If I remember correctly I had seen them on splitcoast stampers years ago.  They are simple and I know I can bang out a bunch.  I had purchased a digi download from Stampin Up for the Pick your Poison paper pack.  I just love it, and wanted to use it. I made the tag in DS2 and punched them out with the Stamp'in Up scallop oval punch.  The Pick your Poison paper was printed on parchment paper as was the tag.  The shadow oval was cut with MTC and my expression. The black cardstock base is 3 7/8" X 3 3/4" so I got 9 sleeves out of a 12" X 12" piece of cardstock.  I measured the Kit Kat bar to determine the size and score lines.  The Kit Kat bar fit perfect.  I really liked making these because they went so quick and easy.  In fact they were so easy that while I was making them I was also making my families favorite potato cheese soup.  It came out so good  and yummy.  A true autumn treat.  Here is a picture:

Just look at the color!! YUM!! Now crafting and cooking on a brisk autumn Sunday, That's my kind of Sunday.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by,
